Abortion and child abuse

Brian E Fisher cited the following quote and statistics in his book Abortion: The Ultimate Exploitation of Women:

Lawrence Lader, co-founder of the pro-abortion group NARAL predicted that abortion would make the world a better place when he said:

“The impact of the abortion revolution may be to too vast to assess immediately. It should usher in an era when every child will be wanted, loved, and properly cared for; when the incidence of infanticides and battered children should be sharply reduced.”

Larry Lader “the Abortion Revolution” The Humanist May/June 1973

*  In reality, Child abuse increased by 400% between 1973 and 1990

Michael J New “Abortion Promises Unfulfilled” The Public Discourse, The Witherspoon Institute, January 23, 2013

* Child abuse injuries involving hospitalization rose 4.9% between 1997 and 2009

Babies are still abandoned. Abortion has not diminished child abuse or infanticide, only added a new type of infanticide to the scene.
